The other day I treated myself to a little something for the dollhouse. I’d had my eye on it for over a year, checked back in and noticed it was out of stock here and there and figured I’d better get moving. With a little of my ad income, I made the purchase.
What do you think? I’ve always loved the kitchens I see in British design magazines and this so reminded me of a Smallbone kitchen that I couldn’t stop thinking of it. I already have an Aga stove, so this fits perfectly!
I was going to paint it. But then I looked at the tiny little plate rack and wasn’t at all sure I could paint around all those spindles. There’s a lot of painted furniture in this house already, so a dash of warm wood in the heart of the kitchen is a good thing. I used some wallpaper remnants at the back of the shelves to tie in with the rest of the kitchen and brighten things up.
I have to buy a faucet and I may tile the backsplash. What about a little curtain for that area under the sink?
I also played around with a shelf I had on hand, painting and aging it. It’s now over the stove – I’m going to hang some copper pans from the bottom of the middle shelf.
The kitchen table has been aged since I took this picture. So far, the kitchen is the hardest room in which to get any sort of good photo. It’s like a dark tunnel and I can’t get the lighting right. Any tips from you fellow dollhouse lovers?
One more shot of the sink and cupboards. I added some more plates.
This is the only way I’m going to get a farmhouse sink, so I might as well enjoy one in the dollhouse!
How are all of you? It’s so stinking hot and humid here that I barely leave the house. I had to run some errands yesterday, one of which was taking the trash to the town dump, ahem… recycling center. Let me tell you, the scent that was emanating from the piles of trash was especially pungent in this heat.
